Our Winter Products:
Bulk Salt (treated and untreated)
The least expensive granular deicer available!
Gee Winter Products are just...BETTER!
Granular and liquid costs less than salt and sand when you factor in damage to carpet/flooring and spring cleanup.
Sand: Cheaper to put down but costs more when you factor in cleanup!
Sand is dirty and requires cleanup in the spring.
Salt: Loses it's effectiveness the colder it gets!
At a temperature of 30 degrees (F), one pound of salt (sodium chloride) will melt approximately 46 pounds of ice. But, as the temperature drops,
salt's effectiveness slows significantly!
Near 10 degrees (F) and below, your salt is
Gee offers pre-treated bulk salt stock piles.
Research has proven when pavement owners apply liquid anti-icing treatments to their pavements as part of a proactive attack before the storm arrives, the result is a significant reduction in the effort (and cost) to keep roads, highways and parking areas clear.
Only a few products meet our exceptionally high standards of quality, performance, and cost-effectiveness in the long-term. At the top of our list, are the powerful and environmentally friendly liquid de-icers Caliber M1000 and Caliber M2000, and here's why.
Caliber enhanced liquid de-icers exhibit more melting and staying power than nearly anything else on the market today. Anti-icing effectiveness is maximized when Caliber is blended into a liquid de-icer. Caliber enhancers act to "supercharge" the liquid de-icer and not only cause the liquid de-icer to melt longer, but to melt at lower temperatures as well. By pre-wetting salt stockpiles with a liquid that stays in the stockpile, work crews achieve a more workable and flowing inventory that handles and stores well over the summer. Pre-wetted rock salt also sticks better when broadcast from application vehicles, reducing losses from bounce and scatter by as much as 40%.
Importantly, anti-icing enhances public safety. Research conducted by insurance agencies, municipalities and state agencies show a dramatic reduction in claims for loss of life, limb and property damage after liquid de-icers are employed.
The benefits of anti-icing with quality products saves you a lot of money!
Benefits of Caliber
De-Icing involves the application of liquid or granular chemicals after precipitation is underway. Chemical de-icers applied for de-icing can either be liquid or granular.
Our front-runner, Caliber MeltDown Liquid de-icer penetrates through snow and ice better than traditional practices to help break the bonding of snow and ice from pavement surfaces and eliminate problems associated with tracking. Our de-icers are delivered in bulk into your storage tank. Mixing is not necessary, and diluting is not recommended. Managers and agencies utilizing MeltDown products report up to 60% savings in cost compared to using traditional de-icing practices.
